The sensibility of breaking apart the black water from the grey water is a given in permaculture design. I am still looking at options for a composting toilet for our next house that will come as close as possible to matching the ease and cost of ordinary indoor plumbing. There are several intriguing ideas. The willow house is really just a permaculture improvement on a standard old outhouse (as viewed by the user). I've gone that route too many times in bad weather (-50 degrees is a real challenge) to be enthralled with that option. I am actually leaning toward the sawdust/ 5 gallon bucket method (putting it aside to compost in the bucket for a few years before it's put on the ground somewhere). My wife is not enthusiastic with this part of permaculture, but she's willing to try things out and I think a little experimentation might just find it solves several problems for us.

Looks like a winner to me!
